A Day at Cape Point
The Cape of Good Hope, or Cape Point, is the southwesternmost point in Africa and the perfect destination for a half or full day excursion out of Cape Town. It's a scenic drive along Chapman's Peak, past the white sands of Kommetjie and Noordhoek beaches, and into a lunar looking landscape of the park. One parked, walk (or funicular ride) up to the lighthouse at Cape Point. On the way back to Cape Town, visit the penguins in Simonstown and dine in the sleepy fishing village of Kalk Bay.
